My kids are the pickiest kids on the planet. I know everyone says that, but let me just like a few things that they’ll actually eat: peanut butter, chicken nuggets and ketchup. Yep…that’s pretty much it. Oh, and smoothies. My babies LOOOOOVE smoothies. That’s how I trick them. I sneak a lot of things in their smoothies and they’re none the wiser. Seriously, they won’t eat mangos or cantaloupe, but they’ll drink a Mango Melon Smoothie. It doesn’t make sense to me either.
I usually go to the store and buy a bunch of fruit and cut it up when I get home. I eat half and freeze the rest for smoothies. That way, I can have a large variety of fruit and it won’t go to waste. Plus, I love smoothies as much as my kids do. I usually drink tropical smoothies, so this one is right up my alley.
- 1 c. milk
- 1 c. ice
- 1 c. cantaloupe
- 3/4 c. watermelon
- 1/4 c. mango
- 1 Tbs. sugar (optional)
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and until smooth. Make sure there are no ice chunks in the smoothie. Serve.
I would be lost without my Blendtec Blender*. It makes THE BEST smoothies. They’re soooo, um smooth. But really, they’re delicious. I also use it for sauces, salsas and even soup and ice cream! I’m pretty much obsessed.
